Stay away from!

slamina, CNET
22 September 2013
  • Summary: This printer is now discontinued through Lexmark and I can see why
  • Pros: Bought cheap at $25.00 new just a little over a year ago
  • Cons: print head failures are notorious. C.S. did replace it but it's bad again. Uses way too much ink and replacements are costlier than most. Paper jams alot and loses connection often. It's more of a hassle and too much money to maintain.

NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS!

cfdealsonline, Ebay
1 June 2012
  • Summary: When my HP printer finally gave out I bought this printer new. Printhead did not work right out of the box and had to get a replacement after being on the phone with Lexmark for over an hour so had to wait a few days to use my "new" printer. Wireless is selective if it wants to work so I hardwired it. Now at least once a week it tells me NO COMMUNICATION so I have to restart everything when in the middle of trying to print. Cartridges are a JOKE!

Lexmark S605

Lee, Amazon
24 June 2011
  • Summary: The print quality of the Lexmark S605 is adequate, but the unit is noisy and slow. It has 4 ink wells, one black and three color. This morning I tried to print a document using 'black ink only' because I knew I was getting low on color. Much to my surprise, however, a message box popped up ordering me to "Replace your cyan ink cartride". "Printer will not print until the cyan ink cartridge is replaced". I couldn't believe it.

Problem with Touch Screen Scanning function...

Debo, Amazon
22 January 2011
  • Summary: So I have this bug going on with my S605. On the touch screen, I choose Scan>Scan to Computer> ... annnnnnnddd NOTHING! I get a message saying its "downloading scan applications from your computer". Well, for some reason the damn thing can't download the list. I uninstalled and reinstalled where it finally worked: ONCE. It went right back to the same problem after I tried to scan another document.

Dissatisfied Lexmark Customer

D. Frazier "denfraz", Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this printer in July 2010 as an upgrade for my Lexmark S405 that had trouble remaining in touch with my computer. I have had Lexmark and only Lexmark printers for the past 15 years. I was happy with my S605 until it said it "cannot communicate with the computer". I tried all the standard remedies to correct this error to no avail. Contacted Lexmark support, got the run around and finally the technician took over by remote control.

Challenges with S605

AMD, Amazon
23 November 2010
  • Summary: Challenges with Lexmark...for the three days (and 20 print pages) the S605 worked, it worked well but my first unit had problems with defective printhead and driver issues. Lexmark ultimately sent a replacement printer but it didn't come with print head or ink cartridges so effectively useless. Finally got them to send yet another replacement but by that time I was a week without a printer and ended up purchasing a competing product.

A good design but defective manufacturing

Mike, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: An hour after my first installation, an error message showed up for "Printhead Error". A step by step direction was given that basically instructed me to remove the printhead and re-insert it. Fine, I followed. After the restart, the same message showed up again. This process repeated itself for three times and at the fourth time, I quit and picked up my phone.

wonderful hardware, bloated software, the Lexmark tradition continues

Michael, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: The Lexmark tradition continues: wonderful, well-engineered hardware, and bloated software that simply tries to do too much without any regard to the computing resources it takes away. My computer, after installing the mandatory Lexmark software, seems almost to become a dedicated extension of the printer.
